Hey everyone, Long time reader first time poster. There's a woman I love with all my heart I've known her for 20 years but we've never been together. I think about her everyday even though we haven't seen each other in years. For me shes always been the one, it just never happened. We text a little but live far apart with our own lives and kids but I try to keep in touch with her whenever I can. I don't do this kind of thing but I wrote her a poem. Im kinda freaked out to let her read it although Im not ashamed of how I feel I don't want to come off like a nut. So I want some honest opinions on the poem itself. I know what I have to do and that's express how I feel. I just want some opinions on the poetry. Especially from the ladies.
Anyway here it is. Please feel free to tell me what you think.
My heart was open the soil was wet We were just kids when we first met All I wanted was just one kiss beautiful brilliant warm and kind Only one girl On my mind A seed was planted deep in my soul. Her light unforgettable the roots took me hold
So bright and amazing She never flaunted the only one I really wanted She's shy like the sun behind a cloud So many things I don't say aloud I can't see the forest For Im a small tree Sometimes I wonder What's wrong with me?
Roots firmly planted branches grow longer, I could'nt reach her I must grow stronger! I must grow tall Show my true colors She'll see them next fall
Deep under my bark down to the core The seed that was planted Has become more. Wind blows the blossoms Off the trees She still makes me wonder Still sets me free
The Birds and the Bees My leaves bore fruit Seedlings sprout New life takes root Snow, wind, ice and hail Seasons are changing I must not fail I must remain My branches are shelter For little ones in the rain
When my last leaves fall My branches will break My bark will split The ground will shake Till that day Ill have a space Where no one knows it's warm and safe room for just one Who shines like the sun On the brightest day each year The 21st of June I hope You're here When you're ready Cause' Im your Forrest And you're my Jenny Posted via Mobile Device
